Elle May Have Just Changed The Women's Magazine Game With Its February Covers
Elle magazine just revealed five covers for its Women In TV issue, starring Priyanka Chopra, Taraji P. Henson, Viola Davis, Olivia Wilde, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
Last year, only three women of color were featured on the magazine's cover for all of 2015, so they really stepped their game up with Chopra, Henson, and Davis each taking a cover for the special issue!
In her cover story with Elle, Quantico star Priyanka Chopra addresses sexism and the idea that women can't have it all.
Taraji P. Henson opens up about her role as Cookie Lyon on Empire and how she avoids becoming a gimmick.
And Viola Davis gets all the way real about Hollywood's body image issues and ageism.
Wilde and Louis-Dreyfus also werk their covers, and open up about their experiences as leading women in TV.
Wilde says, "I will never again take the BS seriously," in reference to fame and Hollywood. Louis-Dreyfus, who returns to HBO's Veep this April, points out that "Right now there are so many [TV] shows on with strong, complicated, powerful, not-so-powerful, interesting human beings who are women," and that she's "thrilled" to be one of them.
